MSF OCBA is continuously adapting processes and tools to improve efficiency and quality of data. We have selected solutions for medical data available to the teams, both in the field and in the headquarters, to support decision-making and improve the quality of the field operations.

To this end, Health Management Information System (HMIS), adapted from the District Health Information Software (DHIS2), was developed, and deployed in 2015. Since then, the system has evolved enormously and with it, its uptake and use. Throughout this time the eHealth team has developed numerous courses and training materials that have grown as new components have been added to the system. Regular changes in software versions, expansion of the system into new areas and interoperability with other tools, as well as high staff turnover, pose numerous challenges for the course materials to keep pace with this ever-changing environment.

The current position has been created with the objective of providing users with the opportunity to take full advantage of HMIS and other data management tools, through updating existing training materials as well as organising and making relevant information readily available.
